five days of ziggy hats - day one

Happy Monday/New Year, everyone!  Time to get back to some level of normalcy now that the holidays are over.  I'm not too excited about that, but at least I have this new crochet pattern to keep my entertained.

If you haven't already checked out the Ziggy Hat, make sure you do.  I bought it right before Christmas to reward myself for all the stress I put myself through knitting all my presents - and I wouldn't allow myself to make one until after Christmas was over.

So as you can see, I went a little nuts and made five over the past week, taking breaks in between to work on other things:


Since there are five, I'm going to feature one each day this week because I think they're all beautiful enough to get their own posts!

This first one is what I'm calling "French Country".  I love this color combination and thought the Ziggy Hat pattern lended itself well to it:



The designer, Liz McQueen, graciously allows sales of hats made from this pattern with proper attribution (details in the pattern itself), so I will probably be putting these in my shop sometime soon.

Make sure to check out the pattern and make your own!  It's not expensive and it's sized for adults, children, and babies.  How cute would a matching set of these be for the whole family?
